Suffering sugarplums! It’s Christmas Eve—and Santa’s sick! His spunky daughter, Jeannette, takes on the task of delivering all the presents, but when rebellious reindeer leave her stranded halfway through the night, Jeannette has to get creative. Luckily, it isn’t long before the feisty Miss Claus makes some new friends and they are back in action, saving Christmas Day for all! With glittery snow on the cover and retro-modern illustrations, this spirited holiday tale is sure to delight young readers.
